Foolproof Tips on Helping Real Estate Agents Locate SFR Owners

Posted by Jaclyn Harris on Jan 11, 2017 5:01:27 PM

Single-Family Rental investors openly acknowledge that they’ve had to figure out the SFR investment market by themselves. The only way to learn is through peer-to-peer training because the industry of residential real estate has never developed the specialization to help people who want to invest in homes, rather than live in them.

For someone wanting to buy and sell Single-Family Rentals in bulk, the process is long and tedious. If they do use a real estate agent, they have to uproot their tenants, list the houses on the MLS and sell each property individually. If they choose to try and sell their portfolio on their own, they have to resort to creating listings on Craig’s List and other local classified sites.

So, why should this matter to a real estate agent? Because the SFR market is blue ocean!

Overseas Investors in US Housing are Getting Ripped Off

Posted by Greg Rand on Jan 10, 2017 5:14:14 PM

I saw some interesting research recently from a few credible sources that retold an old and familiar story: investors across the world are attracted to residential real estate in the US, and many are actively doing something about it. However, what the research leaves out is now many potential investors don't take action because the bridge from there to here is so rickety.

According to an Asia Society Special Report, Chinese investment in residential property amounted to $93 billion between 2010 and 2015, while commercial investment saw just $17.1 billion over the same period. And what are these investors buying? Luxury condos in gateway cities and second homes. Negative cash flow investments that will not product income, but will preserve and grow their capital (as well as get it out of their country).

There’s Now a Way to Sell & Buy Occupied SFR Properties

Posted by Jaclyn Harris on Jan 6, 2017 11:48:12 AM

Until recently, buying and selling Single-Family Rentals has been a tedious process. To sell SFR properties, owners have had to alert their tenants before the property can be listed (or their tenants get a surprise seeing it on Zillow) and then they have to find a new place to live once the home is sold. If sold to another SFR investor, that property then has to be leased out again.

Not only was this process inconvenient for tenants, but it also created more work for the new property owner, as they have to find tenants for this new piece of their SFR portfolio.

Fortunately, there’s now a way to sell and buy occupied Single-Family Rentals!
